Pipatra Banpabutr (b. 1990) is a Thailand based photographer who is inspired by the sights sounds and smells that surround his on a daily basis. He graduated with a BA in Media and Communications from Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is currently living and working in Bangkok as a graphic designer specializing in print and book design. He is an aspiring filmmaker and hopes that photography will allow his to make a transition into film in the near future. Today we share his ongoing series, Siam So Chic.
Siam So Chic is an on-going exploration into the lives of Thai people, questioning the human condition in an age of never-ending desires and increasing social disparity. Selected from a larger body of work taken in the course of 6 years, this project explores my personal fascination into modern culture, aesthetics, emotions and the day-to-day psychology of Thai people against a backdrop of rife westernisation, political unrest and marketing propagandas.
